Somatostatin Receptor Imaging for Neuroendocrine Tumors
This course is made available through an educational partnership with Mallinckrodt Pharmaceuticals. 1.0 Credit Hours—Category A Credit
This course explains the relationship between somatostatin receptors (SSTR) and neuroendocrine tumors and discusses the relationship between the SSTR and somatostatin receptor scintigraphy in the imaging of neuroendocrine tumors.
Respiratory Gating: An Overview (Quick Self Study)
This quick self-study (QSS) is intended to introduce the learner to respiratory gating and its applications within radiation therapy. This QSS will allow the learner to understand overall general basics of respiratory gating, different imaging acquisition techniques that can be used for motion management, techniques used to limit respiratory motion and how respiratory gated radiation treatment delivery can benefit specific tumours sites. It will discuss how respiratory motion affects treatment planning for different treatment techniques and what type of quality assurance (QA) and verification is needed for specific respiratory gating techniques.

Introduction to Orthopedic Implants (Quick Self Study)
This Quick Self Study provides an understanding of the various types of orthopedic hardware involved in orthopedic surgery. It will review the basic understanding of bone fractures, provide an introduction to the different types and use of orthopedic implants and discuss the use of imaging modalities in the diagnosis and treatment of bone fractures and use of orthopedic implants. Use of radiological images will help differentiate and provide an understanding of the types of orthopedic implants used.

CT Simulation (Quick Self Study)
Computed Tomography plays an integral role in Radiation Therapy Treatment Planning. This supplement provides an in-depth look at the entire process of CT Simulation, how it is used not only to delineate tumour and treatment volumes, but how it can assist in defining organs at risk, tumour motion and tissue densities, all of which assist in treatment planning and treatment accuracy. Also included is a discussion of advanced topics such as 4DCT, image fusion, and artifact reduction techniques and software; including Metal Artifact Reduction. The course will be regularly updated to include advancements in technology; both hardware and software.
This QSS will be transitioned to the online delivery platform.
